Prisoner 489 by Joe R. Lansdale

Almost without fail, when being chased in a horror movie, the characters run up the stairs*. I’ve never understood this. They must know that they’re trapping themselves.

So what do you do when you’re part werewolf? I know this is a question we all wonder frequently.

Their parents participated in an experiment that guaranteed the birth of children, but did not guarantee they’dContinue reading “Brood by Chase Novak”

Horror Stories: Twelve of My Favorites

Even though fall has clearly gotten lost on its way to Colorado (hello record breaking temperatures, please go back to summer), it is still my favorite season of the year.

The Mist by Stephen King

Last Monday (September 9th), I had to meet someone three blocks away from my house. There was blue sky overhead and it was stifling hot. As I don’t like to drive, I decided to walk. This was both a good and bad decision*. About a block and a half into my walk (maybe five minutes)Continue reading “The Mist by Stephen King”

R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril

It’s September 1st. You know what that means: RIP (R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril). Or, if you’re me, just an average couple of reading months… Here are the categories to choose from: Mystery. Suspense.

I work out and am physically very healthy, but (sadly) I do not lookContinue reading “Thinner by Stephen King (writing as Richard Bachman)”
